Indeed, a new shining floor. If they work tomorrow I think they place all the other rebar for the columns and maybe lift some forms soon.

Is it worth taking a picture of this from the street? I can go basically anytime i want but I'm not sure the picture would really show anything new.

When I was looking up from the base back in July I couldn't even see the core, so no way you'd be able to see action now. If you were a few blocks away on park, 56th, or 57th you could. It's still worth the trip. The building looks much taller in person.

thought I saw the cranes and the top of the core peeking through from the GWB when I was stuck in traffic the other day.

That is really up to you.
You may show some detail not shown before.
Or also you can find a different angle or spot from where to take the shot. I can think of taking a picture on 56th between Park and Lexington (or/and further east) also could be a picture from Central Park or wathever other place you find.

I've been traveling for the last few weeks...have been very curious how much my view would change while I was gone...

Here's a pic from November 4:


And here's the view this morning (November 30):


Not quite as much growth as I was expecting after 26 days (about 2 apparent floors), but I'm sure that's because of the MEP floor that was in the mix.

One thing that is new for me is a clear view of the "whiteness" of the concrete - I'm glad (and relieved!) to see that it really does shine (at least from a few blocks away on a clear sunny morning).

(...also, I just noticed that the One57 crane is finally gone! good riddence!!!!...)

I'd like to see a photo from Sheep Meadow.

Perimeter rebar went in this morning. We should see perimeter forms jump Monday unless they work tomorrow.

Does anyone know when and how the 56th Street Favco will be dismantled?

I suppose it will stay where it is and get removed by the Potain. Or it will jump itself down to near street level and then get removed by a mobile crane and/or the Potain.

Cool, I was about to ask you for more pictures with your 57th st. camera (I was waiting for the building to grow one or two more floors to ask)

I don't think it is visible from there yet, since I think the GM Building is between. I think the best places are on the southern side of the park, in an angle so the GM Building is keep at the left side of 432 Park. Or maybe on the northestern area.

I don't know, but someone at SSP suggested that they could use the pieces of the tower to raise the other crane instead of bring new pieces. Maybe they just dismantle the boom with the cabin and keep the tower support, dismantling it little by little as they pass the pieces to the other crane.

Notice that it also moves a bit forwards or backwards as the boom is inclined or not. When the boom is up, the counterweight moves inwards and when the boom is extended, the counterweight moves outwards, so it counters the weight better.
These are such cool models; I'm not a crane geek but I'm always amazed these things exist - Speaking of which, can someone explain or point to info that shows how this crane hoists itself up - I can only imagine it magically levitating!

I seem to recall these are two different model cranes (Marcatio ?) so I don't think the parts are interchangeable. I do recall seeing a substantial base being prepped for the 56th crane while the 57th crane was just "placed" on the concrete in the basement. Yet the 57th crane is rising higher - go figure.

I don't know exactly how it works, but I suppose that it works with some hydraulic jacks, similar as the core lifting system works. The crane must have a part of the tower at least two or three levels inside the building.

Not sure, but I guess what it is different is the boom, the cabin and all the mechanisms. Could be and makes sense, that the pieces of the tower that support them are exactly the same.

They have to do something about the concrete, don't they? It can't be left like this? And the gap between window frame and concrete was already discussed here, but it looks like it's quite substantial, certainly big enough for birds to land there and do their business . They'll have to put some spikes or something to prevent this.

Sunrise at 432 Park Ave!

Very sorry for the poor pic through a dirty window, next time I'll open it. the building should be at the Four Seasons height in about a month but from my angle I think it will be February before it appears to be taller. Next one will be New Year's day.
